Bob Atkinson

Add to this higher team salaries, soaring transportation costs and more expensive lodging and a couple of things become apparent.

WHEN IT COMES DOWN to going fast, there is a saying in racing circles that goes, "How fast do you want to spend?" The idea here is that horsepower and handling cost money—lots of money. But life teaches us that for nearly every rule, there is an exception or two.

AS THE fastest-growing aspect of the sport of motorcycling, motocross attracts more newcomers than any other form of motorized, two-wheeled competition. Currently, machinery is at such a highly-advanced and superbly-engineered state, that I find it difficult to imagine what the next major revolutionary modification will be.

IT USED TO BE that you could tell if a motocrosser came from Europe or Japan just by listening to the sound of the engine as the bike raced around a track. Japanese engines "zing," while European motors "growl." Then Husky came out with the 360 Mikkola Replica.

PROBLEM How to practice everyday when the nearest riding area is 40 miles away.... SOLUTION Ride up and down the sidewalk! Actually, it’s a little more complex than that, as the accompanying photos will show. You can make this exercise extremely tough, simply by tightening up your line and staying as close to the curb as possible.

WE WERE PRE-ENTERED in the grueling 500-mile Greenhorn Enduro. It was only four days away when we finally got the call from DeWayne Jones that our 175 Can-Am had arrived at their shop and would be ready the following morning. We knew it would be close and we were prepared.

IF ANYTFIING ON the Can-Am we tested had to be labeled sub-par, it would be the suspension. Not because it is sub-par as far as suspension goes, but because the other elements that make up the Can-Am motorcycle each have a certain element of superiority.

Each year I make a game out of picking the winners...not in horses, for sure, but in Grand National Championship competition in motorcycling. It’s a rough game; the odds are often altered by unforeseen circumstances like injuries, mechanical problems and the like.

According to Nils-Arne Nilsson, the Girling gas-emulsion shock absorbers on the Husqvarna motocrossers this year are very special. The damping rates are exclusive to Husky, since their engineers worked very hard in conjunction with Girling in the development of the dampers.

This time I'll be telling you what you may already know. But for those who are new to the sport, a review of basic maneuvers will be useful. With them, I'll try to lay a foundation for the more subtle techniques of road riding. I'm not so interested in explaining what, but why you do certain basic things, and what you are looking for in terms of a standard of execution.
